Saint Nektarios Monastery was founded and established in January 1999 by the reverend Elder Ephraim with the blessing of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The purpose of the Monastery is to provide a spiritual setting wherein worship and doxology of the Holy Trinity can take place ceaselessly by the resident monks; to be a luminous example of virtue and holy conduct for the faithful; and to preserve the sacred traditions of the Orthodox Church and transmit them to the ensuing generations.
“And what do I have to gain if I loan to You?” someone may ask.
“I will give you one-hundred times more in this life, and everlasting life in the age to come,” God replies.
When and how exactly will God, Who borrowed money for the poor, repay your loan?
